The Deer Lakes Aquatic
Club was founded in 1999 to promote fitness, self-motivation
skills, sportsmanship, and prepare the local youth for competitive
swimming. Deer Lakes Aquatic Club (DLAC) is a member of Allegheny Mountain
Swimming, and all swimmers are registered with USA
We offer a guided
age-group youth program for children ages 5 and up. From the
beginner to the most competitive and skilled swimmer, DLAC offers
instruction for everyone.
The club offers many practice groups. Beginner bronze,
bronze, silver, jr. gold, gold, dragon, middle school club, and
high school conditioning. At each level, the goals and objectives
are specific and directed toward meeting the needs of the swimmer.
Each child will progress at his/her own rate. The coaching staff
recognizes this fact by making team assignments based on a
swimmer's physical, mental, and emotional level of development.
Please see the Parent Handbook for more detailed
